A New Year, A New Beginning

Kim here….I can’t believe it’s almost 2012!  What are your plans for ringing in the new year?  We are heading to the zoo for New Year’s Eve.  We are spending the day with the animals and then ringing in the new year at 8:00 with the boys, lights and a whole lot of fun!
With a new year approaching it’s time to start thinking about goals and change.  Do you have a resolution?  Are you doing One Little Word?  Are you ready for a fresh start or a new beginning?  I have lots of goals for the new year and have my One Little Word narrowed down.  I can’t wait for 2012!
Bella Gypsy is releasing Live, Love Grow today at Gotta Pixel and A Cherry on Top.  It’s soft color palette and gorgeous elements are perfect for scrapping those new beginnings!

Here are some templates that coordinate with Live, Love, Grow
Bella Gypsy is also releasing Lost in Thought today as well.  This kit is also perfect for scrapping about those resolutions or All About Me books!

I hope you all have a fantastic New Year!!
Happy Scrapping!

Let’s ring in 2012 with some great new Bella Gypsy kits! Two fresh, fun bundles of goodness are hitting the stores tomorrow. Without further ado, let’s take a peek! Photobucket Photobucket Fabuous, right? Winning one of these fresh kits would be a great way to start off the new year with a bang! So leave a comment below and be sure to include your e-mail address (that’s very important!) by 11:59 a.m. on Friday, December 30. I’ll post a winner that afternoon. Best wishes!

Happy Friday!

It’s Kim here!  I can’t believe we have one more night before the big man in the red suit arrives and then next week we’ll be counting down to the new year.  What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?  We normally stay at home.  We count down around 8:00 for the boys and then put them to bed.  I end up scrapping and DH plays video games.  This year we have decided to go to Brookfield Zoo for a night of fun!  The boys are super excited about it and we are too.  I am hoping for nice weather….a little snow might make the night a bit more magical too but I am afraid we are going to end up with rain.  I think we are going to have a brown Christmas this year….and we are totally bummed!
Whatever your plans are for New Year’s Eve Bella Gypsy has the perfect kit for you.  Whether you are staying in or partying it up in the city….this kit is super cute and perfect for those New Year’s pictures.
Here’s Make it to Midnight…

Happy Friday! New Releases and TWO Freebies!

It’s Kim here…..can you believe there are only 9 more days until Christmas?!?!  I don’t know about your family, but mine is going CRAZY!  They are all super excited to see what Santa brings them.  We have been baking cookies, wrapping presents and getting ready for Christmas with the family. 
Baking cookies is my boys’ FAVORITE holiday thing to do…besides unwrapping presents.  We have made several batches of cookies and are making one more tomorrow…one of my favorites…sugar cookies.  It’s always a fun time in our house when it comes time to decorate.  We always have the “boy” cookie pile and the cookie pile that is suitable for all to eat!  LOL  In our house it’s Decorate, Eat and then Repeat.  The boys always eat as they decorate!
Here’s a layout that I did with Holiday Bake Shoppe that is hitting the stores today!  It shows what happens in our house when  it’s time to decorate cookies!  This was Jason a few years ago…but things haven’t change much!

If you read a little further I made some word art for you…using my title from the layout! Now that you have seen a little peek…here’s the full reveal!

Happy Friday

Happy Friday Scrappers!  It’s Kim here on this cold Friday trying to warm you up with some Christmas cheer!
How many of you are done with your holiday shopping?  We did the bulk a few weeks ago and are wrapping things up this weekend.  We are pulling a shop til we drop Saturday….with THREE boys in tow!  It’s not going to be fun!  We are determined to finish up buying for the great nieces and nephews and the rest of the family and call it quits for Christmas 2011.  We are also planning a trip to Woodfield Mall to see Santa!  The boys can’t wait!
Bella Gypsy has a perfect holiday kit hitting the stores today…great for scrapping all those Santa pictures!  Check out Country Christmas.
